How to Install Small Toilets Wisely to Utilise Minimum Space
Whether you have a big or small bathroom area, you must know where to place the toilets and how much space it needs.
Therefore, the first thing you need to do is to select the place dedicated to the toilet space. It can be anywhere, it can be any dedicated bathroom area or any small space that you want to change into a restroom.
To begin with, you need to find out the least space you need to turn that area into a bathroom. While appointing a plumber you should also communicate with him and advise him to apply the minimum space rule.
The minimum space rule is an important factor if you are already dealing with a small space. This rule allows you to efficiently use the area and make your bathroom comfortable to use.
A Quick Guide to Measure the Dimension:
- The Distance between left to right= minimum of 30 inches
- The Distance between front to back= length of the whole toilet + minimum of 21 inches
The above specifications will help you to achieve the minimum space rule. However, it is recommended to check the local building code, since every local code is different from the other.
Dimensions of Small Toilets That You Should Consider While Buying
The height of the toilets is never an issue for small bathrooms. However, the width of the toilets should be minimum to fit in the small bathroom areas. The width should be at least 30 inches. If you have space less than that, then you must leave the idea of creating a bathroom space. Because any toilet less than that would not be comfortable to do the business.
So while buying a comfortable toilet seat for your toilet, you now know what width size is best for your usage.
After discussing the width size of the toilet, let’s now move towards the specification of the length.
If the length of your toilet is short that means if the front to back distance of the bathroom is not much and you can not leave a clearance of 21 inches. Then you need to shift the toilet seat more towards the wall. Other than that, you can also minimize the length of the toilet to stick to the minimum rule. So before designing or restoring the toilet it is best to resort to the whole toilet design.
However, you should know that if the length of the toilet seats gets shorter then the cost of the product also gets higher. The cost depends on the inches you need to save from your bathroom. You do not need to worry, the prices are expensive but affordable.
Good news, if you just want to save a few inches, about 2 to 3 inches, then a round-shaped toilet will work for you. But if you need to save more than that then get ready to empty your wallet.
If spending is the only option you are left with then, we have prepared the following listicles of the best compact toilets in the market.
Top Small Toilets for Your Tiny Bathroom
All those who have decided to spend a little more to give your bathroom a good look may get some amazing products in this section.
Before starting your hunt for that perfect toilet for your bathroom. Here are some points you should keep in your mind.
- All the toilets we will be discussing below are two-piece toilets with a round bowl with them. The round bowl toilets are shorter in size than the ones with elongated seats. If you are getting an elongated and two-piece toilet you can not have it less than the length of 27 inches.
- In the elongated toilet, the size of the bowl is between 3 to 4 inches. Therefore, the round bowl increases a certain length of your toilet.
So if you are up for the above specification, then the next section has some great deal of treasure for you.
You need to measure the whole length from the tip of the bowl of the toilet and the wall. However, according to the American Standard, the overall length is measured between the tank of the toilet and the wall including a clearance gap.
